Intended learning outcomes

On successful completion of this course you will be able to:

  • account for cutting and forming processes, including unconventional methods
  • calculate the economic cutting conditions
  • explain the causes of tool wear
  • conduct a modal analysis and calculate the natural frequency and damping
  • to produce a stability diagram for the manufacturing processing of a slender shaft
  • interpret toleranced engineering drawings and plan and carry out a measurement of a part in a coordinate measurement machine
  • suggest an improved manufacturing process from analysis of measurement data
  • propose and justify the tool geometry, tool materials and coatings for typical processing cases
  • summarize the results of measurements in a laboratory report

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Bonus points for the written exam can be used for 12 months only

Laboratory exercises are only offered during the course

Other requirements for final grade

Written examination (TEN1, 3 cr)

Laboratory exercises and field trip (LAB1, 3 cr)

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
